Glen Bailey

March 19, 1936 — March 13, 2024

Brownsville, TN


Glen Bailey, age 87, a resident of Brownsville, TN, departed this life on March 13, 2024, with his beloved wife by his side. Graveside Services will be held on Saturday, March 16, 2024, at 1:00 PM at the Brownsville Memorial Gardens with Dr. John Hayes officiating. 


Glen Bailey was born on March 19, 1936, in Reagan, TN to R.C. Bailey and Frankie Dyer Bailey. He retired after 30 years as a mechanic for Dixon Auto. He lived a life to be proud of, as it showed just the kind of man he was, hardworking, caring, and passionate about what he loved.


Mr. Bailey served in the Army National Guard from 1958-1966, where he achieved the rank of sergeant, while also receiving several awards in expert marksmanship. He was known for being one of the best auto mechanics around, having one of the biggest and bountiful gardens, and maintaining a beautiful yard. He had a love for reading and among the hundreds of books that his hands held, he was proud of his accomplishment of reading the Bible through three times. When he decided to retire from the mechanic shop, he proudly passed the business to his son, Lynn. He then began traveling with his wife, where he visited many places such as Hawaii and Alaska, but he would tell anyone that his most memorable trip was one he shared with family to Washington D.C. and Arlington, VA to the Iwo Jima Monument.


He is survived by his spouse, Shirley Bailey of Brownsville, TN; one son, Lynn Bailey (Brenda) of Brownsville, TN, as well as their children and grandchildren; one brother, Jimmy Bailey of Brownsville, TN; one sister, Peggy Staggs of Brownsville, TN, as well as several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, R.C. Bailey and Frankie Dyer Bailey.


The family has requested memorials be made to the charity of the donor’s choice.


His travels had to come to an end many years ago, but he was determined to continue his outdoor passions and enjoy his life, and he was doing just that when the Lord said, “Your work on earth is done my good and faithful servant”.
